Written by Robert A. Houghton (with journalistic assistance from Ted Taylor) this tells the inside story of the creation and work of `Special Unit Senator' - the group that was tasked with the investigation of RFK's assassination. Houghton - of the LAPD - headed-up SUS and his access to all of the evidence and files that were generated provides the reader with an un-matched, first-hand account of how Sirhan Sirhan was captured, interrogated, charged and, ultimately convicted.
Along with much else, this remarkable book chronicles the huge task that SUS undertook in seeking to discover if Sirhan and his act could be linked to any co-conspirators. It really is an amazing story, full of hoax-leads, mistaken witnesses and a great deal of plain, old police 'footwork'.
Later books by Dan Moldea and Mel Ayton have been able to bring the story up-to-date and both frequently cite from this vital publication.
For readers who have a genuine interest in the historical and legal truth of RFK's murder - rather than a desire to wallow in a murky pool of conspiracy mud - this book, along with the diligent works of the aforementioned Moldea and Ayton is required reading.
